Swansea City manager Graham Potter has indicated that 29-year-old striker Wilfried Bony is close to a return, having been out since February with knee ligament damage, according to reports on Wales Online.
Bony is back in training and though not fit enough for Rotherham this weekend, the manager will be hoping he’s in contention for Bolton the following week.
But is it time for Potter to consider offloading Bony in the January transfer window?
I’ve never been a Bony fan so I’ll always be saying yes to this.
He’s a big, lumbering centre forward who built a career on one decent season and has done very little since.
If they can cash him in and reinvest then they’ll be much better for it.
It’s time to axe him.
Bony is probably the last of the Swansea players that are on ridiculously high wages since they were in the Premier League and even though he is returning from an injury lay-off, they should get rid of the forward.
The Swans should cash in whilst he’s fit and reinvest the money in other areas of the squad with Oliver McBurnie’s good form this season.
He does not seem to be enjoying his time with the Swans and it makes sense to get rid.
Spend those wages on a few more players who can really strengthen the squad.
